Wisdom teeth Twenty One dental clinic dentist Brighton Hove

Learn About Partially Erupted Wisdom Teeth

The third molars at the back of the mouth are known as wisdom teeth, and they are the last teeth to emerge during the teen years. If there isn’t enough room for them to emerge they remain partially erupted.

Key takeaways:

– This means that most or all of the tooth remains below the gum line and the tooth may lie in an awkward position.

– Impacted wisdom teeth can cause infections and pain and may cause neighbouring teeth to move out of place.

– They can be difficult to clean, leading to gum disease.

“It’s essential to get them evaluated by your dentist as soon as possible if you’re experiencing any symptoms!”
